Peak District Boundary Walk

Peak District Boundary Walk

Peak District Boundary Walk

edited by: Andrew McCloy
To celebrate Britain's first and arguably most beautiful national park, supporters of Friends of the Peak District have devised a walking route around its entire boundary. Stretching from the moorland tops of the South Pennines to the gentle limestone scenery of the Derbyshire Dales, the route embraces the urban edges of Sheffield and Oldham, as well as Staffordshire's rugged moorland and the undulating slopes of Cheshire.

Starting at Buxton follow the route along existing footpaths, tracks, quiet lanes, former railway lines and a canal towpath. Enjoy some quiet and little known corners of the national park. The route can be walked in day stages or tackled in one continuous walking holiday. The text is broken down into ten stages, each beginning with start and finish grid references, distance and ascent, a summary of paths and terrain and what to look out for. There are plenty of attractive colour photographs throughout the book.

The book includes a detailed route description supported by stunning full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer mapping with the route highlighted in green. There is also information about places of interest and local facilities. Separate features examine some of the key national park issues and how the Friends of the Peak District have campaigned for over 90 years to safeguard our most precious landscapes.
